Chicago – September, 2019
Total Living Network (TLN) has added new programs to its locally produced series FAITH CHICAGO. Two new episodes will feature a joint outreach promotion between TLN and Comcast/Greater Chicago Region that brought the TLN/Comcast/CampFit Community Tour to charitable organizations serving kids and their families in Chicago and surrounding suburbs.
TLN and Comcast hosted CampFit’s founder Rob Howze at The Salvation Army Freedom Center in Humbold Park, Chicago, Breakthrough Urban Ministries’ FamilyPlex in East Garfield Park, Chicago, the George Leland S.T.E.M. School in West Garfield Park, Chicago in association with BUILD Chicago, Restoration Ministries’ Boxing Club in Harvey, IL and Good Time Kids Young Actors Studio in Elmwood Park, Chicago. Howze presented health and nutrition tips and self-esteem advice to the participants, in addition to leading them in exercise routines easily continued in their homes and playgrounds.
Comcast representatives were on hand to educate nearly 300 kids, their parents and caregivers about its Internet Essentials program, which offers low-cost internet service, discounted computer equipment and free digital literacy training to families with at least one child eligible for the National School Lunch Program. Internet Essentials eligibility was recently expanded to low-income veterans, and now connects more than 6 million low-income Americans (in 1.5 million households) to the internet in their homes.
